Living Life From The Inside Out

Turning inward to our soul-self takes guidance

I work with clients to at all stages of their life and health, leading them inward towards their soul-self. This eternal part of each of us simply is, the place of our being. As we learn to identify with our I AM, our definition of life and death changes. And with this our outer life becomes peaceful and enriched, our days spent fully alive and present.

As we transition into November, the change in light and weather naturally helps us to look towards the seasons of our own lives. I hope that you will align with this natural rythym, and delve ever more deeply within your being. I am available by phone or Skype to walk through this with you. Namaste

The Rythm of Fall

The Rythm of Fall

Responding to the energy of this season

It was an incredibly beautiful fall afternoon here in Door County WI yesterday. Aware that gale force winds and rain were predicted last night, I seized the chance to spend hours outdoors in our beautiful yard. Our many hostas and lilies have begun to show that their growing season is past, and I enjoyed pulling old yellowed leaves while preparing the plant for the winter ahead.

I realized as I did, that I was silently blessing each. Instinctively I welcomed their life force back inside, deep into our earth. I heard my mind encouraging a restful time of renewal as they lay dormant for the months ahead. Hearing myself this way, I reflected on  my own response to each season and how I care for this yard that I love.

I am joyful in the early spring, with it’s first sense of earth in my fingers after months of frozen ground and snow. I feel alive when this time comes, and eagerly open these plants to the growing season that is ahead. I clear old leaves, do the pruning of bushes that will help encourage and shape them, carefully assure that the soil is nourished and ready. Yet as the warm months proceed, my nurturing moves aside. I assure that they are watered and pruned, but my own interest is not as acute until this time returns each fall. Then I spend hours outdoors lovingly caring for them, nurturing and blessing them once again.

I have long ago stopped trying to be any different, as the wisdom and acceptance of my age has allowed. Yet yesterday created an epiphany; I became aware that this very pattern is in full accord with my work in the world. It is about the life force awakening, later turning within, and ultimately leaving this physical reality. It was a comforting awareness, another affirmation that we all are who we are. And that I, and everyone else, is made perfectly suited for our soul’s work. Namaste.

The awesome power of our natural world

I just returned from a week spent in Wyoming. My daughter, and her family, recently moved there and this was my first visit. I have been through Wyoming on several trips West in years past, but never to really see and explore this incredible state.

What I found was a limitless variety of natural beauty, the textures and colors of rock different in every direction that we explored. And beyond that, I felt as though in a deeply grounded cathedral, almost hearing the sacred chant of the earth as we hiked.

I love being outdoors wherever life finds me, it is my place of worship. But being in the West, in the vast expanses of rugged and pristine nature, helps me to connect through the depth of myself to all that is. I bow low to Mother Earth, in true gratitude and reverence.
